Liberation by Brian Francis Slattery

Book Description

From the author of the literary pulp phenomenon "Spaceman Blues" comes a future history cautionary tale, a heist movie in the style of a hippie novel."""Liberation" is a speculation on life in near-future America after the country suffers an economic cataclysm that leads to the resurgence of ghosts of its past such as the human slave trade. Our heroes are the Slick Six, a group of international criminals who set out to alleviate the worst of these conditions and put America on the road to recovery. "Liberation" is a story about living down the past, personally and nationally; about being able to laugh at the punch line to the long, dark joke of American history.Slattery's prose moves seamlessly between present and past, action and memory. With "Liberation," he celebrates the resilience and ingenuity of the American spirit.
